In celebration of Black History Month, the New Jersey Judiciary will present a lunchtime program featuring the Cicely L. Tyson Community School of Performing and Fine Arts on Wednesday, Feb. 15 at noon in the lobby of the Richard J. Hughes Justice Complex, 25 Market St., Trenton.
The performance is entitled “A Celebration of Black History through Song and Dance.” Vocal Director Jean L. James and Dance Director Bettina Peets will conduct. Judge Glenn A. Grant, acting administrative director of the courts, will give introductory remarks.
“We are pleased to welcome the talented youth and teachers of the Cicely Tyson School back to the justice complex to help us celebrate Black History month,” said Judge Grant. “Through their music, they provide us a terrific opportunity to remember and reflect on some of the most important moments in history and to renew our pride in the cultural and artistic contributions of the African American community.”
The Cicely L. Tyson School of Performing and Fine Arts serves as the East Orange School District’s educational center for the development of performing and fine arts for middle and high school students.
The event is free and open to the public.
